After work today, im headed over to collect my 'wood find', a old oak shed I
in an eairler post. I will most likely have to stack it off behind the shop.
Just wondering if
id run into any problems keeping it under a tarp, or plastic of some
Im thinking mid-south humidity + plastic + wood, not a good combo...
Good time to build a lean2 off the shop....except i checked on 2x prices
2x4s going for 5bucks apiece now....
Any other outside storage options?
Top less important than bottom. You want to stack and sticker it on a
_flat_ surface. Easy enough to leave a little air between the stack and the
tarp, I do it all the time with green wood, and it doesn't mildew.
http://www.fpl.fs.fed.us/TMU/publications.htm has publications on stacking
and storing. What applies to green will work for old.
Put down some logs or 4X4s 3-4 ft apart.
Stack and sticker wood.
Put some stickers on top of pile and cover with roofing tin. Make sure to
overlap the tin so water runs off, not into the pile (if the pile is long
enough to need two pieces of tin lengthwise).
Weight the tin with some logs or cement blocks. It's incredible what the
wind can lift iin a storm! Four blocks on a short pile, six on a long pile,
or equivalent in six inch logs.
Condensation takes place under tarps and plastic and starts mold before you
